So, the 11th question is “Are your books standalone or sequels?”

1) Author #1 : Eric Nierstedt 

My books generally turn out to be series; I’m not sure I could write a standalone at this point!

2) Author #2:  M.A.N. 

At the moment, they’re all standalone, but I do have a series or two planned for the future.

3) Author #3:  Peighton Weber 

Sequels. My book is the first in a six-book series. The second is in progress.

4) Author #4:  Lisa Lowell 

Officially, they are sequels, but because the protagonist is different, and the former main character becomes a side character, or even an antagonist, they can stand alone. They also tend to take place at separate times and sometimes, decades later.

5) Author #5:  Rachael Krotec 

My book, Premonition, is the first in a trilogy.

6) Author #6:  Mark Piggott

I plan my novels as trilogies, working to spread the story out into one complete set. Series are better to work with when it comes long, drawn out stories.


8) Author #8: Steve Holder

All my books are islands, but if one were to read them all they would see a pattern and some repeat characters who seem to jump from one book to the other.

9) Author #9: Dyane Forde

The books are a trilogy.

10) Author #10: David Chylde

This book will be a prequel to my dystopian series starting with Angel Hunt.

11) Author #11: Irene Helenowski

So far, I have my science fiction trilogy and my standalone road trip book.

12) Author #12:  Ellwyn Autumn 

Both. Chris Kringle’s Cops is a series, Captain Hook: Villain or Victim? is a stand alone and The Kamyla Chung Series is a compilation of stand alone books.
